The 99-room Mokara is one of San Antonio’s most stylish hotels, featuring swanky amenities that include a beautiful rooftop pool, a premium spa, and fine dining -- all in a prime location right on the River Walk. The rooms at this luxury boutique are bright and sophisticated, though some have much better views than others and most lack flat-screen TVs.
The re-branded version of a previous hotel in a completely refurbished building that oozes class and modern style.
Previously the site of the Watermark Hotel -- and long before that, a 19th-century saddlery -- this 99-room boutique property is one of the most luxurious options on the River Walk. Leather couches, limestone walls, and wooden accents give the lobby a modern vibe that feels luxurious without being snooty.
Right on San Antonio’s famed River Walk, with a number of excellent restaurants in its vicinity and close to historical attractions
Located on a small street fronting San Antonio’s famed River Walk, the Mokara is walking distance from restaurants, shops, tourist attractions, and historic sites.
San Antonio is a cultural city, with Latin communities and outdoor markets in La Villita, the oldest neighborhood in San Antonio. During the summer, festivals are held almost every week and flamenco dancers often perform. To escape the oppressive summer heat, the young and hip cool down with margaritas on River Walk, a winding street lined with restaurants and bars, while families opt to visit theme parks such as Splash Town and Six Flags. San Antonio is particularly kid-friendly, with numerous amusement parks, bike paths, HemisFair Park (park and convention center complete with gardens and playgrounds), and a zoo.
